Learning Goal: I’m working on a other discussion question and need the explanation and answer to help me learn.

First write a discussion

What were the limitations of the Emancipation Proclamation issued by President Lincoln? Explain the need for a 13th Amendment.

What were the opportunities and limits of freedom during Reconstruction? (ex. legislation, voting, amendments, schools, etc.)

How do today’s debates about voting restrictions (ex. limits on mail voting) compare to voting restrictions during Reconstruction

second write a reflection

Explain the most significant ways in which freedom was both expanded and limited during Reconstruction. In your conclusion, consider how this experience influenced the future of freedom and opportunity for African Americans and women. How does it influence how we think today about racial inequality?
